Description Jesse Keating 2008-02-22 11:08:18 EST
This is an automatically filed bug for a failed rebuild attempt for GCC 4.3.


Please verify why this build failed and fix it.
Exit code was 1, check the build.log for the failed buildArch task.

Confirming that this is indeed problem introduced with GCC 4.3 itself and not a
buildroot issue.  The error is:

"error: explicit template specialization cannot have a storage class"

According to http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.3/porting_to.html this is easy to fix (see
the page), but it needs a patch and somebody to get it added upstream.

This needs to be done ASAP as ginac not building also blocks octave-forge and
perhaps other packages, and a freeze is coming up next week.

Successfully rebuilt:


* Sun Mar  2 2008 Alex Lancaster <alexlan> - 1.4.1-4
- Patch for building with GCC 4.3 (this has been applied upstream and so
  can be dropped in the next release of ginac).

Will rebuild octave-forge against this new ginac once repo updates.
